Romo Magnis: Jokowi Hanya Seorang Politisi yang Mengincar Kekuasaan

beritaviral.org - Budayawan Franz Magnis-Suseno melayangkan kritik pedas melalui surat yang dikirimnya untuk Presiden Jokowi Widodo terkait rencana Jokowi menghadiri perayaan Natal di Papua. Surat tersebut ditayangkan di portal Jakarta Post.

Situs berbahasa inggris tersebut memasang judul "Your letters: Jokowi does not need to go to Papua" atas surat Franz Magnis-Suseno. Dalam surat yang ditayangkan Selasa Kemarin, sang budayawan menegaskan bahwa mayoritas penduduk Papua di mana 90 persen adalah pemilih Jokowi-JK, tak mengharap kehadiran Presiden RI.


"Dengan mengabaikan pembunuhan lima warga tak bersenjata dan 21 warga luka di Paniai oleh aparat keamanan 10 hari lalu, presiden telah menunjukkan bahwa dia tak ambil pusing terhadap nyawa warga Papua,"  Franz Magnis-Suseno.

Lebih lanjut dituliskan bahwa Presiden Jokowi telah gagal membuktikan bahwa 'Jakarta' benar-benar menganggap bahwa rakyat Papua sebagai warga negara Indonesia dan sebagai manusia. "Tidak bagi Jokowi, ini kejadian biasa. Seperti pendahulunya, ia tak akan melaksanakan investigasi serius terhadap kekejaman yang dilakukan aparat keamanan di sana."

Di bagian akhir, Romo Magnis menulis kritik pedas terhadap Presiden Jokowi. "Hanya butuh waktu kurang dari dua bulan masa kerja bagi Presiden baru ini untuk menunjukkan bahwa dia hanyalah seorang politisi yang mengincar kekuasaan seperti yang lain"

Berikut isi surat Romo Magnis sebagaimana dilansir Jakarta Post:

This is a comment on the President’s intention to attend Christmas celebrations in Papua.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo should have the decency not to force his attendance at the celebration of Christmas by Christian churches in Papua.

They have made it clear that many Papuans — 90 percent of whom voted for him in the last elections — no longer welcome him, and for very good reason.

By ignoring the killing of five unarmed civilians and the wounding of 21 more in Paniai by security personal 10 days ago, the President has demonstrated that he doesn’t give a damn for Papuan lives. He flunked his chance to prove that Jakarta really regards Papuans as Indonesians and human beings.

But no, with President Jokowi, it’s business as usual. Like his predecessors, he will not initiate any serious investigation into security apparatus brutality.

It is unsurprising, then, that he has already given clear signs that under his presidency, the terrible killings of hundreds of thousands of innocent Indonesians 49 years ago will continue to go uninvestigated.

The same is true regarding the murder of Munir (and others, such as Marsinah). The assumption of the “Jokowi-volunteers” that their idol had some special moral credibility has — sad to say — proved misplaced.

It took the new President less than two months in office to show that he was just another power-politician. Maybe this return to realism could even have its advantages.
